When Joseph Kori sent a mean text to his wife, Mary Kamangara, on the night she was murdered, he had no idea that would be the last time he communicated with her.
The text message was sent on January 26, after he came home in Kiambu county and she wasn’t there.
The angry text read,
“HAVE FUN AND DON’T COME BACK HOME.” KORI WROTE.

At the time, he didn’t know that she had already been murdered — her head smashed with a pressure cooker allegedly wielded by his ex-lover – Judy Mungai – in her kitchen.
The two women, who knew each other, had fought when Kamangara for the first time saw photos of her husband hanging in his ex-lover’s house, a court document says.
Kamangara’s fury-filled killing murder on January 26 was widely reported, depicted as stemming from a love triangle.
The murder case is ongoing in court.
Kori and his late wife had a full life together. Here are photos of the two of them together before her gruesome murder.
